What Is Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC)?
Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) is a genetic disorder that can lead to the formation of benign tumor-like lesions in organs throughout the body. These primarily include the brain, eyes, heart, kidneys, lungs, oral cavity, and skin. TSC affects each person differently with some people having more manifestations than others. Some manifestations of TSC may appear at birth while others may not appear until a child is older.
